Diane de Beer Putting to rest a contankerous old hermit
Pam Grady A deft blend of drama, comedy, mystery, and a touch of romance, this self-financed indie that received the benediction of the Sundance Film Festival as one of its Premieres selections will appeal strongly to a mature audience drawn to robust characters, dry wit, and great performances.

Roger Ebert All of this is just plain enjoyable. I liked it, but please don't make me say it's deeply moving or redemptive and uplifting. It's a genre piece for character actors is what it is, and that's an honorable thing for it to be.
Jason Anderson Robert Duvall gives a richly satisfying late-career demonstration of his greatness. The rest of the picture is pretty good, too.
Peter Travers By the end of this funny, touching and acutely observed film, shot in Georgia by the gifted cinematographer David Boyd and flavored by Jan A.P. Kaczmarek's bluegrass score, Felix reveals his secret heart. And Duvall, without a word wasted or fumbled, holds you in thrall.
T. Durgin If you like to get your money's worth by watching great actors act in stories well told, this is a movie for you.
Tomatometer Subtle to a fault, this perfectly cast ensemble drama is lifted by typically sharp performances from Robert Duvall and Bill Murray.
